ULM 2009 PREP Staff announced
The University of Louisiana at Monroe Office of Recruitment and Admissions has announced the selection of the 2009 Preview Registration and Enrollment Program Staff. PREP Staff is an elite group of students that have excelled in the areas of leadership, academic achievement and enthusiasm for ULM.
PREP is a two-day orientation program held each week in June, to introduce the academic, social and cultural aspects of ULM and to promote a sense of dedication and pride among incoming students. During PREP, the PREP Staff plays an important role in helping new students adjust to college life by acquainting them with the requirements and expectations of the university and with student services and campus resources. Staffers also guide students through academic planning and registration and help provide an opportunity for students to interact with faculty, staff and other students that can help them as they transition into college life.
During the PREP program, parents of incoming students have the opportunity to attend the Parent Orientation Program. Two ULM students are selected each year to serve on POP Staff to assist parents as their student transitions to life at ULM.
The PREP Staff will not only have the opportunity to lead the PREP sessions but will also attend the Southern Regional Orientation Workshop at the University of Mississippi in March 2009, with other universities from across the South.
Members of the 2009 PREP Staff are:
